I started this quilt last fall when I was feeling particularly homesick for the States. In the corners I was going to add some appliqué, but I think I am going to leave it blank and do some pretty quilting. I've never done trapunto - so maybe that would be a good idea for that area. I'm piecing red and off white half square triangles for the border right now. I'm not quite sure how I am going to lay them out yet, but I'll figure something out. All the cats were asleep, so I was able to get the quilt up and off the floor before they knew what was going on!
